Any Bible scholars or practicing Jews: Wouldn’t a rabbi have to have a wife to be taken seriously, or am I misunderstanding the practices back then?

Rabbis did not exist until after the 2nd century Jewish diaspora.

After the temple was destroyed, yes. But He is called “Rabbi” and teacher in many versions of the New Testament, right?
